The Battle of Draconis was a skirmish betwen a group of pirates and several bounty hunters and mercenaries. Lenara Disavio, Jag'Tai Vroenik and Kashmar Zukiss had decided to claim the system for their own, both due to excpetional resource deposits across the system and to protect the native species of its fourth planet. However, they were driven off by the trandoshan pirate Drokk, who sought shelter after raiding a republic supply convoy.
During the course of the battle, The Cutthroat was disabled and finally boarded, after her fighter complement had been all but annihilated. Luckily the ship sported little more than a skeleton crew, and heavy use of slaved circuitry reduced the number of pirates on board even further. Their assailants, most of which were accomplished former commandos or bounty hunters, proved superior, and took the frigate as prize for their own.
